    I just read a post by Don Cogan that they will have a Chevy 2010 Cobalt car to shoot for, w/shell as another prize, A Blaser Shotgun, and other prizes watch future postings for the Ohio State Shoot.

    Looks like Car Shoots of the 70s is coming back.

    Congrats to the OSTA for this undertaking.

    Setterman,

    No contest here. Marengo will never host The Grand American!

    Do you really think a proper trapshooter can fit in a Cobalt? Lol.

    Shorty, I heared they were giving away a Moped at Sparta. It was all the State of Illinois could afford since the tax base took a dump.

    Years ago they shot for Caddillacs, Ford Pinto, as I can remember, most car shoots were out West.

    I think a car shoot will attract shooters.

    Thank You OSTA.

    Long Cold winter evenings leave a lot of time to get on the computer and read Trap and Field.

    Anything to bring shooters to the clubs is welcomed.

    Stingray,

    We will have a $10 option on each of the first 11 events. Each event we will draw 5 winners. The winners will each get a flat of shells and be in the shootoff for the car. If a shooter is drawn more than once they will get the shells each time but can only shoot off one time for the car. We plan to have a special option available on Tuesday only of $90 for those that want to enter the drawing for all 11 events with a $20 discount. You do not have to shoot to enter the drawing. There will be a maximum of 55 shooters in the shootoff. This option will take the place of the old shell drawing for the Foundation. Hopefully this will raise a few bucks for the Foundation's annual college scholarships.


    Thanks for your question,

    Don Cogan

    OSTA Director

    I see nothing wrong with it if they can get enough people in it to pay for it. Do you want to go up against the Big Boys, with all the whining about them and their advantage over everyone?

    I am just worried about not freezing to death in Florida. If you had winter coats and sweaters for sale you could make a fortune here this last week. 21 degrees right now.

    What a great promotion. I like my chances in a five bird shootout against anyone. First you have to win the drawing and get your money back in shells then virtually a "free" shot at a car, WOW I like it. Good job OSTA keep being progressive.
